DATE CHANGED: Mt. Rainier Road-trip SUNDAY 9-8

Hey Guys

UPDATE:

When it comes to Mt Rainier, it's best to follow the weather. Saturday may be OK, but is on the sketchy side. Sunday's weather looks to be perfect.

I won't be able to make the Sunday trip myself so we may have a second trip in the future. If anyone wants to be the official event organizer for this one, feel free to jump in! In any case it's all set up for you guys:

MEETING PLACE (Bring your cars or selves to this location)

Green Lake Park and Ride

6601 8th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98115,

corner of Northeast 65th Street and Oswego Place NE

DESCRIPTION:

Who isn't curious about that gigantic white mountain on the horizon? It's time to become better acquainted with a visit to this stunning national park. We'll carpool and drive up to the Paradise area of the park and take in some of the most specular viewing areas.

COST:

Mt Rainier is about a 3 hour drive to the park, so plan on making a day of this trip! Also be sure to pitch in for gas.

Entrance Fee for Mt Rainier National Park is $15/car

Have fun guys! And hope to be up there soon myself!

    The road trip went well. However it was unfortunate that only 4 out 18 people showed up; we waited a half hour for people to show up. I really wanted to meet a large number of people on this trip. But I still had a good time with the people that went. I got to see some beautiful country side and meadows. There several hiking trails at the National Park; I will definitely go back in the future to camp and do some hiking.

    11am meeting time at Green Lake Park and Ride!

    No need for hiking info as this is not a hiking meetup as like a tourist's (or new to seattle!) introduction tour of the park--- minimal elevation gain or slight hills, minimal distance unless your group really wants to get out there and hike for a bit.

    Good luck w/ your event guys-- sorry won't be able to make it myself.
    Though it's all set-up.
    1. Meet at the Green Lake park and ride, at the intersection indicated above.
    2. Say hi to all your fellow Meet-upers.
    3. Pile in a few cars and go!
    4. Take the Nisqually entrance to Mt Rainier, meet again in the Paradise Parking lot.
    5. Contemplate mountain and enjoy :)

  • Cindy

    Turns out I may not be able to attend, so I have changed my RSVP to No so that someone else can move off the waitlist.

    August 27, 2013

  • Christopher

    Excellent! John is coming ;)

    August 24, 2013

    • K

      Aww dangit. Now I feel even worse that my Sat is all booked up. With John there, it's bound to be a party ;) Chris, I guess you'll just have to do a repeat. ;)

  • Krisha M.

    Hi! I'll be needing a ride, and I'm willing to share gas and other expenses in exchange for space in a car. :) I live in Kent, but I can meet up downtown if needed.

    August 26, 2013

  • Christopher

    So many questions!
    To answer a few:

    Great idea Cindy-- I was also thinking of setting up a meeting place at a Park and Ride so that we can carpool efficiently.

    I will definitely adjust the number of participants considering the enthusiasm involved, though if you're on the waitlist, sit tight for right now.

    And of course, we will reschedule in case of bad weather

    August 26, 2013

  • Cindy

    Weird! I posted a comment (or at least thought I did :-)) that I can drive and take 2 passengers, if they can share the cost of gas and the $15 park entrance fee.

    August 25, 2013

    • Cindy

      Do you guys know of a central sort of place, like a park & ride, where we could all meet? I will be coming from Lake Forest Park (north of Seattle).

      August 26, 2013

    • Gaurav

      any park & ride on 405 going south?

      August 26, 2013

  • Jessy

    Hi! My husband and I need a ride from Fremont. We can split gas and whatever else.

    August 26, 2013

    • Jessy

      Also, we can meet at a convenient place if you can't pick us up in Fremont.

    I'd like to participate and drive my own vehicle, I have space for two passengers. However, I won't participate if it is raining on Saturday.

  • Lea W.

    Hello ! I live in Ballard across from Ray's. I'm willing to share gas and entrance fee in exchange for a ride. Let me know!

    August 25, 2013

  • Gaurav

    Hi! I am looking for a ride as well and will share the fuel and entrance fee. I'm in Kirkland.

    August 25, 2013

  • Lindamac

    Wait listed already! Is the number of people limited by the number of drivers with passenger seats? If I drove I could take 1 passenger in my small pickup, but could also pack coolers or other gear in the back, if that would free up another couple of seats. (I'm new in this area and am hoping to meet some folks and see some sights!)

    Hello! I would need a ride. I live in Redmond, but I can take a bus to Seattle down town too. Let me know if somebody has space and living in those areas.

    August 25, 2013

  • K

    Oh man. I'd be so in if it was Sunday.

    August 24, 2013

  • Christopher

    Meetup isn't showing the answer of the question of who can drive there. Please indicate that in this section if you're a driver! I'm driving though my car is full (small car!)
